Mark Rose
Mark Rose
Chicago artist Mark Rose is taking a huge step forward with his upcoming label debut The Wild Type (9.25.15 via InVogue Records). "My stride on this album is a bit dark and haunting, but hopefully in an alluring way."
Mark is best known as a solo artist, and as former front man of indie/emo rock band Spitalfield. He has spent the greater part of the past decade writing, recording, and performing--and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Alternative Press Magazine writes, "Rose’s debut solo album, Wonderful Trouble (2011, self-released), has the style and emotion of a John Hughes movie soundtrack." This makes a lot of sense, as Mark grew up in the Chicagoland area many of these films took place, and was also very influenced by the movies growing up.

While at Columbia College Chicago studying music composition, Mark signed his first recording contract and publishing deal at the age of 19. He hit the pause button on other things happening in his life and got into a tour van. Fast forward to the present-- he has 200,000 album sales + 1,000 tour dates under his belt. Not a bad start for the songwriter, who first picked up a guitar to learn the intro riff to "Enter Sandman."

Rose recently inked a recording contract with InVogue Records (WMG), who will release his label debut The Wild Type on Sept 25th. The lead single "Well & Diet" has set the tone for the album, gathering nearly 10,000 YouTube views in the first week of release.
Chris Leamy
Chris Leamy
Chris Leamy is a singer/songwriter from Chicago, IL currently performing out of New York City. His solo act is known for a traditional acoustic vibe with a variety of subtle twists ranging from reggae to folk. But not too folky like yodeling, well except that one time. Chris’ passion is live performance. Whether it is on stage in NYC, the early morning hours of an after party or getting rowdy with hardcore fans at the local nursing home, Chris brings the energy you expect from someone that has to pay most of his bills by working a suit and tie day job. His first EP, “The Start”, debuted in late 2014. Don’t let the uncreative title fool you, the album is full of hits that will get you going. Well, as full as a 4 song EP can be.
